Rehab Aftercare Recovery Coaching

Recovery Coaching supports the alcohol & drug addiction rehab aftercare plan. Providing critical ongoing professional guidance and direction while the addicted individual develops their independence.

Recovery Coaching is Aftercare Support.

An alcohol & drug  addiction aftercare Recovery Coach is a part of an affective treatment plan. They ensure someone completing a treatment program is still supported while applying the fundamental recovery mechanisms that will be needed to maintain their recovery. This support will further develop the client’s independence and connections to a healthy community.

This aftercare mentorship will guide the client through the post-rehab phase and beyond.

The Recovery Coach helps the client to bridge the treatment education and therapy, with community resources, and a continuum of care network that will assist in their successful transition. With the support of the Recovery Coach the client begins executing their aftercare plan. The prompt implementation of this plan is critical to the continuum of care philosophy of addiction treatment, and ultimately with the likelihood of their success in recovery.

After Rehab is a critical time for someone entering a independent life of recovery. Therefore, the goal is to build recovery systems and support that will allow the individual to develop their integrity, self-esteem and self-confidence.  This will greatly improve the odds of success and the likelihood the individual will live a life free from active addiction.

The Major Components of Recovery Coaching

  • Recovery Programs

    The choice of recovery philosophy is a personal one, but the fundamentals remain the same, you must be committed and involved. Whether it is a 12 Step, or a scientifically based recovery program, we will ensure that the client understands and is adapting the necessary principles in his or her life. It is paramount, especially in the 12 step based recovery programs, that an individual or client be given clear and accurate information about how these programs work. Often well meaning people can give poor guidance in their efforts to help. This can often lead the individual to becoming confused and frustrated, ultimately hampering their recovery. This is where the Recovery Coach ultimately safeguards the individual from any misguidance.

  • Relationship Building

    Treatment is often a place where an individual will learn about healthy relationship building strategies, but it usually isn’t until the person is actually on their own that the practice will truly begin. This is precisely where the Recovery Coach will bridge the gap between treatment and everyday life. Supporting the individual in the development of these interpersonal skills is the desired goal.

  • Employment / Education

    Most addiction treatment centres provide a vocational or educational plan as part of their program. However, once the client has left treatment it is entirely up to them to execute this plan. Finding resources and support in the initial first steps can be challenging, and potentially leaving the client feeling overwhelmed, especially in the early stages of recovery.

  • Recreation / Hobbies

    Having a recreational activity is often one of the most overlooked parts of the well balanced lifestyle for the recovering addict. Finding new associations for recreation and pleasure is essential. Whether it be sports, arts, or other active social groups, getting involved in these types of recreational communities dramatically diminishes the likelihood of relapse.

Client Testimonials
So often when you are immersed in the turmoil of addiction of a loved one, you cannot see a way out nor when looking in to their life, you cannot make sense of it. Even the thought of an “outside force” such as a professional interventionist, having an influence seems like a waste of time.  You think, my addicted person will never sit still through an intervention, let alone take the help that is being offered afterward.   The worry that an ultimatum has to come with the intervention is heartbreaking, will the addicted person hate us forever? This is how my wife and I were feeling. I spoke to one professional and she told me “don’t try an intervention, it just won’t work”!  I was
